What is kinesiology? Kinesiology is a natural health care method which uses muscle monitoring to assess energy and body function. What does that mean? Biology 101 tells us that every cell has a nucleus and every nucleus has a memory. When events occur in life, emotions are felt. Sometimes we deal with them and they are processed and sometimes it’s too hard and they get pushed down, in the too-hard basket. Those emotions will eventually need to be dealt with and will make themselves felt. Muscle monitoring, or testing, accesses information about physical, mental and emotional health. In people, we use their own muscle. In animals, it’s easier to ‘surrogate’ for the pet – get into its energy – and muscle test on their behalf. This allows us to determine what emotions are stuck, blocking the body’s use of it Chi energy and sometimes affecting body function. Sometimes we need to determine where in the body the emotions are being and the original cause of the emotion. It’s not always a big event that causes emotional blockages. Things that we may consider not too serious or even trivial, can be of greater significance to our pet than we might imagine. Once the emotions have been determined, they can be cleared out. There are many ways this can be done and muscle monitoring will determine the best way for each pet. Once they have been cleared out, a flower essence may be prescribed to support the changes to the body. The full effect of the session can take a few days to be felt – it is better to work slowly, as removing too many emotions at once can leave our pets feeling worse than they did before they come in – and that’s not a good thing! Kinesiology is useful for fear and anxiety, inappropriate behaviours, excessive or aggressive barking, allergies and intolerances. Rehomed pets always benefit from kinesiology, as they tend to come into our lives with some very stressful issues already. The number of sessions required will depend on the pet and their issue, but most respond very well and become calm and relaxed happy pets.
